The playwright and artistic director at Roverman Productions, Uncle Ebo Whyte, has reacted to the recent directives issued by the Ghana Tourism Authority regarding the ease of restrictions on cinema and theatre events.
The cinemas and theatres had been out of business for a year now due to the outbreak of the coronavirus pandemic. They are some of the places that were restricted from operating, so as to contain the spread of the virus.
He told Citi News that even though he has heard of the restrictions, he is yet to study and understand the guidelines.
However, he said that if he is given the opportunity to choose a perfect model to use for the operation of the theatres, he would go for what he used for his plays in December.
Ebo Whyte said during that time, he made sure he went by the government’s set COVID-19 protocols.
“The models we adopted for our festivals in December were perfect. They were excellent. Remember those were the days when the infection rates were also dicey and climbing, yet there wasn’t even a case from our place. So we know we have tested something so we will compare it with what the guidelines say,” he said.
